August Favourites

August Favourites - Miss Bella blogs

Urban Decay Naked Palette
I have been reaching for this palette pretty much everyday this month. My most used shades being 'sin' which I have been using all over my lid, and when I have wanted to define my crease I have been using 'buck'. These have been my go to shades the most this month and it is great for an everyday look.

Balm Balm Lip Balm
To keep my lips moisturised I have been loving the balm balm lip balm. It has natural ingredients and doesn't contain any nasty chemicals which I love! It also keep my lips moisturised and soft on days when I don't want to wear any other lip products.

Benefit Instant Brow Pencil
This is an old favourite of mine which I used to use all the time! However since I got Benefit's Gimme brow this product has taken a bit of a back seat. I re-found my love for this when my gimme brow ran out and I decided that I would give this a go again. I am so glad I did as I had forgotten how much I love it! 

Eco Tools Double Ended Eye Brush
I have been loving this brush for applying my eyeshadow. I like to use this brush to apply shadow in my crease and the other end to line my eyes. It is such a useful brush and also saves room in my brush pot too!

What are your favourites from this month? Have you re-found any old favourites?

Confessions Of A Mini Beauty Haul

Confessions Of A Mini Beauty Haul - Miss Bella blogs

For today's post I thought that I would do a mini haul of the products that I have bought this month. I only went to boots to pick up one thing but as you can see that didn't happen! (In fact I am quite proud of my self for not buying more!) I went in to buy the seventeen eye eye shadow in rose quartz, after hearing some good things about these shadows I thought that I would give it a try. Of course as I was walking to the till the Maybelline lash sensational mascara caught my eye! Again I have heard good things about this product. There was also an offer on it and seeing as it was on my wishlist I thought what better time than now to get it!
I was doing so well, so far I got what I came in for and a little extra (which is totally ok seeing as it was on my wishlist, so not really an extra!) Then while waiting in the queue my eyes just happened to wander upon the cute little mini products they have lined up just waiting to temp you. That was when I saw the mini Essie polish! It was just sat there calling out to me, I couldn't not pick it up! I reasoned with myself, it's ok to get this, I love Essie polishes, I love pink polishes, it is only a small bottle if I don't like it it isn't as much as a waste as buying a bigger bottle. Ok, that is settled then I will get this and then that is it! All in all I thought that it was a good days shopping! 

What have you bought this month? Do you also end up buying more than you planned?

Nails of the Day

Nails of the Day - Miss Bella blogs

I haven't done any nail art for a while so I decided to clear some time to sit down and do my nails. I came up with this design using a pale pink and silver polish. The pale pink polish is one of my firm Essie favourites 'Fiji' and the silver is a Nails inc Kate Spade one from a magazine. To draw the arrow I used the silver Barry M nail art pen. I think that this is a really cute and simple to do nail design.

To create this design I started with a base coat then I painted two coats of 'Fiji' onto all of my nails except my ring finger, which I painted with the silver polish. When my nails had dried I then drew on the arrow with the nail art pen.To create the dot on my thumb nail I used the brush from the silver polish and tapped the end of the brush onto my nail to create a dot. When my nails were dry I applied a top coat.
